ISTANBUL (AP) - Turkey says that its intelligence agency has gathered solid intelligence that shows the Syrian government was behind the alleged chemical weapons attack this month.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said at a press conference in Ankara Friday: "There is no doubt the Syrian regime was behind the chemical attack." Davutoglu says an analysis of the launching point of missiles believed to have carried chemical payloads was conclusive. He did not say where the intelligence came from.

Turkey has long called for international intervention in the Syrian conflict. The comments come as U.S. President Barack Obama is convening national security advisers at the White House to discuss plans for a possible military response.

Davutoglu says: "The international community shoulders the responsibility from now on."
